The Seattle Seahawks were awarded linebacker O'Brien Schofield off waivers from the Arizona Cardinals, providing another pass rusher to a defense already featuring several players that can get to the quarterback.

Schofield was cut Friday by the Cardinals.

A nine-game starter last season, Schofield recorded 36 tackles and four sacks prior to suffering a season-ending ankle injury.

The 6-foot-3, 242-pounder can play outside linebacker or operate at defensive end.

Schofield figures to be supremely motivated when he plays the Cardinals twice this season.
